, petraeus was nominated by president obama replacing outgoing cia director leon panetta. now head of the department of defense. but petraeus suddenly resigned one week ago in petraeus' own words, a quote unquote extramarital affair. the woman in question, paula broadwell who is also married and co-wrote a 400-page biography of general petraeus last year when petraeus was still the top commander in afghanistan. >> it is a portrait of modern warfare. and i tried to show in the back how his ideas are playing out on the ground through the poor traits of three battalion commanders. >> petraeus still has a stellar reputation. a four-star general, with a 37- year military career. he was chosen by president george w. bush to oversee the surge strategy in iraq in 2007. he was sent by president obama to be the top commander in afghanistan, heading isaf, the international security assistance force. so how did this affair come to light? when this woman, jill kelley, a married tampa bay socialite, complained to the fbi that she was receiving harassing e-mails from an anonymous sender. she regi
resignation of the cia director germ david petraeus, stepping down because of an extramarital affair. here's part of the message he sent to employees this afternoon. after being married for over 37 years, i showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. let's get right to our cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. pretty shocking information from all we know. what else are you learning? >> right. well, wolf, i don't think i can emphasize what a bombshell this was yesterday. in the letter that was sent to employees at the cia, this is the first they were hearing about what's obviously been going on for a while. and of course while we can't ask general pa traeurs what's going on, there are a few more nuggets that he sent out to the workforce today. he quoted teddy roosevelt when he said one of life's greatest gifts is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. these are petraeus's own words.
defense department thinks or our state department thinks or hour c.i.a. thinks. their number one priority is to protect men lives. >>reporter: secretary of state, hillary clinton says there is risk serving america in countrieses like libya. >>shepard: he came to the defense of the ambassador rice. >>reporter: many think she has lost her chance to be on the short list for secretary of state because of her saying a week after the benghazi attack that it grew out of a roast of the anti-islam film. the president would not confirm she is on the short list of people to replace secretary of state, hillary clinton who is leaving but he went after senator john mccain and graham who say they do not trust her. >> if senator john mccain and senator graham want to go after someone they should go after me. i am happy to have that discussion with them. for them to go after the u.n. ambassador would had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation base the republicans are trying to see would will blink over extensions of the bush operation upper income tax cuts. the president says rai
that brought down the head of the cia, general david petraeus. another u.s. general is caught in the same tangled web. john allen, top commander in afghanistan, is being investigated by the pentagon for allegedly sending inappropriate e-mails to a married woman, the same woman whose complaint of threatening e-mails from general petraeus' lover cracked the scandal wide open. barbara starr is trying to sort this out for us. it is rather complicated, what's the latest you're getting? >> it is still the same fundamental question for the last 24 hours, wolf. why is john allen being investigated and how on earth did he get caught up in this? marine corps general john allen denies an extramarital affair with jill kelly, the florida socialite whose concern over threatening e-mails led to an investigation that revealed an affair between cia director david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. a pentagon official told reporters allen who commands the war in afghanistan is adamant he did nothing wrong. a senior official close to allen tells cnn of kelly there is no affair, she's a bored soci
handle this showdown? a new scandal involving now former cia director general petraeus and an extramarital affair, a florida socialite, a bare chested fbi agent and is this a concern or a washington smoke screen? >> i don't think anyone on either side of the aisle underestimates the difficulties. >> both sides work to gain the high ground in dealing with the looming fiscal cliff, but the media seem to be one-sided in the details. which side do you think they're on? and it's in with the new, but are the old staying, too. >> oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> on the panel this week, writer and fox news contributor judy miller. jove oldman, talk radio and jim pinkerton contributing editor the american conservative magazine, and alan colmes, author of thank liberals for saving america and i'm jon scott, fox news watch is on right now. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her.

's susan boyle. bill: here we go. a fox news exclusive. former cia director david petraeus who resigned friday after acknowledging the extramarital affair with his biographer has agreed to testify voluntarily before the house and senate intelligence committee. prior to his resignation he had been scheduled to testify about the scandal in benghazi, libya where the ambassador and three other americans were killed. that was initially blamed on a spontaneous demonstration over a film, a mob. he has contacted the cia as well as committees in the house and senate to offer his testimony meanwhile, new questions on whether or not general petraeus told everything that he knew on benghazi the first time he sat down for testimony. that would have been three days after the attack on the 14th of september. so good morning. a lot to chew on. we'll connect all the dots. i'm bill hemmer. good morning. martha: that's a huge headline that petraeus will testify. lawmakers were set to be briefed by the fbi today on capitol hill. they have a lot of questions about all of this. why did no one inform congress
will say, we are told, that the cia was able to disprove that. that the video at the end of the day didn't have much to do with it, if anything, but the problem is that disproving of that theory came after he first testified and briefed capitol hill and apparently after ambassador susan rice made those comments. >> that's why it's so significant, it also came after ambassador rice's appearance on the sunday shows, where she is now being grilled by john mccain and others. i'm talking to him in a few minutes. so it's very significant i think what general petraeus believed at the time. it does beg a belief, really, why would ambassador rice go on national television, having had a briefing we believe from the cia, which turned out to be flawed if the director of the cia right away knew this was an al qaeda affiliated group? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, th
to walk through it with you. on september 14, c.i.a. chief david petraeus made a statement that indicated it was a spontaneous demonstration caused by a crazy videotape. that was echoed by the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. all right? that's what happened. yet cables from the c.i.a. out of tripoli, libya, say the day after it was a terrorist attack, an organized terrorist attack with heavy weaponry. so you got your own c.i.a. chief contradicting his guys in libya. am i accurate so far? >> well, you're right. the director petraeus did say a couple of days later that based on the information they had, that they thought that this was an act of violence that arose out of a protest. >> bill: okay. but that's impossible -- >> that is what he said. >> bill: yeah. but that's impossible because the cables that fox news read say the c.i.a. guys on the ground in libya told petraeus and the brass and langly that it was a terrorist attack. so either petraeus is lying or he can't read. >> well, here is what we know, bill. you don't have a spontaneous attack from folks carrying ak 47s and other automatic
of the cia. the benghazi blame game. >> the american people deserve to know the facts. we cannot ever let this happen again. >> why would susan rice not get our vote? i don't trust her. >> defending susan rice. >> senator mccain and senator graham want to go after some big, they should go after me. >> there are no barriers, they to sitting down and working through this process. >> as the fiscal cliff limbs, is there a deal in the works? mitt romney explains why he lost . >> the president's campaign was focused on his base coalition, giving extraordinary gifts from the government, working aggressively to turn them out to vote. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> i just don't know where to begin this week. do we talk about republican charges of a cover-up with regard to the fatal attack in benghazi? do we talk about sexual liaisons and e-mails and national security? to talk about israel and gaza. the possibility of a deal to avoid going off the fiscal clf? let's art th the sex.

>> i can hear you. >> the time for change has come. chris: a problem with intelligence. the c.i.a. director should know the risks. didn't he know walls have ears and secrets have a sell-by date. why did take tray -- petraeus betray us. bill clinton has healed himself. and now politics mired in scandal. it's not just the family hurt but the rest of us. live longer, work longer. some propose to avoid the fiscal cliff would raise the age for social security and/or medicare and may work for some but how about the men and women whose backs, legs and heart can't wait two more years to retire? you want a 70-year-old flying the airplane? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today access tv dan rather, the bbc katty kay, "the new york times" jodi kantor and abc's sam donaldson. first up the petraeus story and it has us disturbed. washington is just as dumbfounded, torn between wonder at the dysfunction of our national security leaders and of course reluctant curiosity. dan, why does this same thing keep happening? it just happens, these powerful men, even as disciplined as
that susan rice gave it her best shot, the cia has taken responsibility for producing that intelligence report which was a week late amended, in essence, where they said it wasn't really exactly what happened, and what happened was that, you know, it was a premeditated attack. but to be clear, susan rice also said in the video you showed that this was a military-style attack. there's never been confusion about that from the beginning. they never said this was a bunch of guys who climbed the fence and jumped over. they said it looked like it came out of a spontaneous demonstration. remember, the guy who conducted the attack himself gave an interview and said he was able to round up the guys because of the anger over the video. so i just think this is making a whole lot about nothing. megyn: i know, okay, okay, let's not retread all the old ground. what simon said there was right about the guy, there was some question about the vid crow in the early days -- video in the early days. but the white house didn't say we're getting conflicting information, we're hearing on the one hand that it
of the wildcard and the military will deal with that. general petraeus outside of that in the cia has a different set of ground rulings. but if every single professional or leader, including president's, was disqualified because of personal indiscretion, our line of leaders would probably be pretty short. and we should keep that in our memory. in fact, eisenhower, it was reported during the war, had a relationship with his driver. >> absolutely. >> and yet we hold him in incredible regard and we should. so this is not to apologize for anything that has happened or may have happened, depending on media reports, but we shouldn't forget the years of service these men have given and they should be given the benefit of the doubt. i've heard them, i've watched them, i have followed them. these are professionals who put this country first. >> and with the petraeus affair, i mean, it certainly and show poor judgment, but we should point out, and he stepped aside. but in general allen's case, his confidants who talked to the press, there was no affair with joe kelly, they were never in a romney alone. you
by the cia were different from the ones that were finally put out. as far as general petraeus, his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorists involved from the start. my questions had a very different recollection of that, clear impression we were given is that the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was -- rose out of a spontaneous demonstration and it was not a terrorist attack and pointed out the following week when matt olson said it was a terrorist attack and it made headlines because before then, the administration was saying it was not terrorists. it was very cordial, as you will. we all thanked him for his service. i think he has a different impression of the impressions he left on september 14th. >> mr. chairman, can you tell us whether or not his affair or security surrounding his affair came up at all? >> only in -- one question he was asked at the start, did that have any impact on his testimony. he said no. >> how are the talking points different? >> the original talking points were with much more specific about --
: this is a fox news alert. in just 36 hour, former cia director david petraeus will testify about ben befnl he may be the one who knows the most about what happened on september 11. just two weeks ago, general petraeus went to libya to conduct his own investigation. so now. >>, congress will get the chance to question general petraeus about what he knows. but will it bring us closer to answering the question? n incompetence or coverup or something else? >> this president of this administration has either been guilty of cocolossal incompetence or engaged in a coverup, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemp plear work. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> why did you pick her to tell us about benghazi? what does she have to do with benghazi? did anybody ask her for additional security?
. thank you for staying with us for this hour. the acting director of the cia met for more than an hour with senators john mccain and lindsey graham along with the u.n. ambassador susan rice. the three senators emerged from the meeting saying they were honored by the fact that the cia director would meet with them, just three random senators and not in some official capacity testifying before committee on the hill. they appreciated the fact that the administration and the intelligence community was going to such lengths to e swaj their concerns to personally answer their questions about the libya attack in a closed-door meeting with the cia director himself, even though these are just three random senators. the senators said their questions were answered as reasonably could be expected and they were willing to consider the president's nominee for secretary of state. they were tlog hear out those nominations fairly and without prejudice. yeah right. that's not the way it went. here's actually what happened after that meeting today. >> we're not going to consider this nomination until we
